The Age of Brass and Steam, Revisited
The Age of Brass and Steam is an easy, yet elegant triangular (free) shawl pattern that has been around for years on Ravelry. With easy eyelets incorporated every few inches, it is a great pattern to use with any plant based yarn for summer wear.
Recently, a customer came to our shop wearing a triangular shawl, which she knit inspired by designer Stephen West. Instead of "eyelets" every few inches, she used a Noro yarn and knit four rows of garter stitch. This easy tweak of adding color ridges made a striking shawl. We just had to knit one too.
If you have about 400 yards of neutral dk, worsted, or aran weight yarn in your stash, grab a skein or two of Noro and have fun! If it isn't in your stash, this may be a good time to try some of Maine's natural yarns. We have Noro Kureyon to use with aran or heavy worsted neutral yarn or Noro Silk Garden to use with light worsted or dk weight yarn.
